Here's the page I created. I'm making pages for a friend who also happens to be one of my pastors at my church. She has the most adorable dogs. When I saw the photos, I thought of BasicGrey paper, for some reason. I think the distressing on their papers has a warm and cozy feel.
Here are some details. I substituted the diamonds at the top of the sketch with this tree branch and ornaments. All of the cut files on my page are from the Silhouette shop.
After I added the ornament element, I felt the page needed a little something extra, and I found this exquisite winter village die cut at the Silhouette store. I initially envisioned keeping it just white with the background paper showing through, but it wasn't showing up the way I wanted, so I backed it with various BasicGrey papers.
Here's a shot of the other side. It's hard to tell from the photo, but I used Icicle Stickles on the roofs of the houses. The snowflakes are by Jolee's.
I hope you'll come play with us. Not only is this an awesome sketch, but we've got prizes from our generous sponsors!
